Fantastic little place. Very clean and comfortable with a little ensuite bathroom included. Friendly owners who did their utmost to help with questions about the city and surrounding area. The street where the hostel is very quiet so you will have a great night's sleep. There is a 24 hour shop around the corner so you will be able to... More

I stayed at Elysia hostel in July 2013, and really enjoyed my time there. It was a very quiet hostel contrary to the other larger/party hostels my friend and I had visited on our travels. We were able to cool down at Elysia, and the owners took great care of us. Elysia is a small hostel with limited space but... More

In the heart of Sofia, well-located to visit the town while very calm. The (owner at the) reception is welcoming you in a very friendly way. The hostel has even a lovely garden with flowers where one can drink mint tea, with fresh mint from the garden. The rooms are clean and well maintained. Very good value for its price.... More

This place is located between city center and train/bus station which make things very easy. Room is good quality price despite my night was not so good as too cold...but it's my fault, I didn't notice the covers in the locker :( It's quiet place just before a main street which lead to bus/train station of city center. Wifi is... More

We've been stayed at Elysia Hostel as a couple for a second time! We've liked it very much so the next time we'll book there again. The hosts are very nice and try their best to help us enjoying our stay. There is a nice garden with beautiful flowers. Very good quality versus price.

It breaks my heart to write this review. The people that run this hostel are so nice and friendly that you instantely would like to forgive them anything. But as this website serves to give neutral information, I must say that we were not very satisfied with the room. It was very small, with a very small double bed tucked... More

Nice family-run hostel with helpful and hospitable owners. I had large well appointed and clean room with good breakfast at a reasonable price. Bus station and many places of interest can be reached by foot in about fifteen minutes from the hostel. Hope to stay here again

Very friendly and nice staff. Very good location-close to the city center and bus/railway station. The hostel is small but very clean and tidy. There's a 24h supermarket just around the corner if you need one. I would definitely come back!

Very warm welcome, a house with rooms rather than an apartment type hostel, decent size room with good bathroom, good location between city centre and railway station in a quite street, not to far to walk either way. Shop just around the corner if needed.
